The Joint Special Mobile Brigade of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba is one of the most closed special forces in the world.
Elite units of the Cuban army. Many people may have heard about them. But the details of their preparation and activities are hardly known to a wide circle of people.
In his recent material, “Military Acceptance” talks about one of the most closed and little-known special forces in the world - the joint special mobile brigade of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba.
A distinctive feature of this special unit is the ability to fight without machine guns, bulletproof vests, helmets and even without shoes. However, these fighters do not need them, since their profile is sabotage activities on enemy territory.
As explained in the Cuban army, the unit’s fighters do not wear shoes in order to move as quietly as possible. To do this, they undergo special training that makes their feet literally “iron.”
At the same time, the Cuban saboteurs have “iron” not only in their heels. A fighter, like a yogi, can easily lie down on a stretched barbed wire, his colleague will walk on top of him, and he will not receive any injuries.
Another feature of the work of this unit is the use of underground shelters. Cuban soldiers dig deep, narrow holes in enemy territory, like rabbit holes. They can then stay there for up to a week, only going out for short periods to complete tasks. In particular, mining or blowing up important enemy targets.
Typically, the fighters of the above-mentioned Cuban special forces use a Kalashnikov assault rifle as a weapon. In this case, this is selected weapon not by chance. After all, it’s unlikely that any other machine will work properly after they dig into the ground with it and drag it along the sand.
It is worth noting that for each task, its own camouflage line is created. At the same time, we are not talking about some kind of device or form, but about a special paint - a pigment that is absolutely harmless to health. After all, as mentioned above, the fighters of the joint special mobile brigade of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba operate without body armor, special ammunition, and sometimes without weapons at all.
Before becoming part of a sabotage unit, recruits undergo training in the jungle, learning to camouflage, move silently and survive in extreme conditions. They are also trained in the use of terrain for natural cover and in explosives engineering.
